lil' hipster

This little bike appeared over the weekend on a rack at University of Manitoba. The hipsters are getting younger and younger it seems. Note the following nods to the NYC fixed gear bike scene:

brightly-colored hand grips

top-tube pad with clashing color scheme

five-blade, aero spoke wheels

single hand brake (though on the wrong wheel, but bonus points for mounting the lever on the wrong side)

    Doesn't look locked up. In a nod to NYC, someone might thieve it!

    In a nod to Manitoba, it sat unlocked and rusting for two weeks.
